Post Surgery Day 33

Have a low fever today. Feeling blah.

Sinuses are causing heavy coughing again.

Just an all around bad day today.

Fever went up, doctor had me go to ER.

UTI is bad. Being admitted to hospital. Getting hi-test antibiotics.

Post Surgery Day 32

I had a rough night last night. Took a pain pill, having discomfort with catheter. Pain pill was not helping.

Woke up after midnight, had a couple of bladder spasms. Asked for some prayer on Facebook. Felt the peace of God come over me almost immediately. Phil 4:7

Also having some stomach problems this week.

Post Surgery Day 26

I’ve had another good day. 

The cot seems like it might work. Did a good days work on the computer.

I am not going to continue to update this every day now – it is getting redundant. I will update when something of note happens.  If it wasn’t for the catheter, life would be returning to normal.

Barring any unforeseen happenings, the next event will be the cystogram and followup doctor’s visit to have the catheter removed on May 22.

 I appreciate the concern and all the prayers and thoughts!

Phil 1:3

Post Surgery Day 25

Good day today.

Got a full days work done on computer.

Decided I couldn’t sleep on couch any more. Back and neck hurt too much. Really can’t try regular bed yet with catheter. Still can’t sleep on side yet. Can’t sleep flat on back with allergies and sinuses.

Trying a cot tonight. I’m hoping this will work out better.

Post Surgery Day 24

Had a pretty good day today.

Was able to get a lot of work done on computers, although there were problems with some hosting providers that ate up a lot of time. Not fun when you are not feeling your best.

Still praying the bladder heals.

Hospital called to set up cystogram on May 22. Have follow up doctor’s appointment.

Still trying to get the catheter back to a place where it gets more comfortable.

Still not able to sleep very good with catheter, sinuses and allergies.

Psalm 139:10

Post Surgery Day 23

Today was an okay day.

Got work done on the computers today.

Just praying that the bladder heals over the next two weeks.

So far no further reaction to yesterday’s iodine. Good.

Trying to get the catheter back to some comfort level, the doctor wanted to have it stretched for a day. Very painful.

Post Surgery Day 22

Today was a big let down.

Had cystogram. Still showed small tear in bladder. Went back to the doctor for followup visit.

He tightened up the catheter (added water to the bulb to seal it tighter in the bladder).

He promised the bladder would heal, he said we just have to have patience, the tear is small. The bad news is that the next cystogram is now two weeks from tomorrow. On top of that he has put some tension on the catheter, I have to keep it “tight” until tomorrow. More painful anytime I move.

Post Surgery Day 21

Okay day today.

Showed up for scheduled cystogram. Radiologist would not do it, wanted more pre-medication.

Doctor is calling in prescription for Prednisone.

Rescheduled cystogram and doctor’s appointment for tomorrow.

Post Surgery Day 20

Another good day today.

Sinuses are causing problems, hope coughing isn’t preventing healing. Allergies just won’t quit.

Minor neck ache persisting for third day now.

Hives improving.

Took Benadryl in preparation for cystogram tomorrow.

Praying this catheter comes out tomorrow.
